HEAT Series 3 Number 2

Giramondo’s celebrated literary journal continues in its new third series.

Opening HEAT Series 3 Number 2 is an essay by British novelist Helen Oyeyemi on the ‘electrical wriggle’ that characterises writing at play. New Zealand writer Pip Adam summons e-scooters to life in ‘Unlock to Ride’, and poet Samuel Wagan Watson makes a foray into prose with ‘Min-Min’, a flash of a story. A lovelorn lament set in Sydney’s Blue Mountains by Luke Carman follows; then swooping verse from Melbourne poet Michael Farrell; and, finally, fiction by new writer Ren Arcamone that blends the surreal with the everyday.
